Tom - World Tour!
Hey all, just come from Agra and the home of the Taj Mahal which was absolutely amazing. India is growing on me now and you now accept all the random things you see as just being India! That includes everyone who uses the streets as toilets and the cows that just wonder the streets eating out of the piles of rubbish that are litterally everywhere!! We are now in the holy city of Varanassi and this morning we woke at 5.30am and took a 2 hour boat ride down the river Gangees to see the ghats (sets of steps down to the water) where people wash and do various other strange ceremonies in the Gangees. Aparently 30 sewers run into the river and now its so polluted the river is septic, nice! Even our guide on the boat had a wash this morning in it and even a quick swill in the mouth to freshen up, obviously we just resided to the more conventional shower! Tomorrow we are heading to Mumbai (Bombay) in the south to see the city and then as we are coming near to the end of our trip we are heading to Goas beaches for a few days to chill out before flying home. I will try and update some pics soon on their state of the art computers! T
